Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Such a moving addition to this brilliant #CrimeThriller series – Her Deadly Touch by Lisa Regan

Title: Her Deadly Touch

Series: Detective Josie Quinn #12

Author: Lisa Regan

Publisher: Bookouture

Pub Day: August 12th 2021

The woman is kneeling at a gravestone, her hair blowing in the breeze, a bunch of wilting yellow daffodils on the grass beside her. Her eyes are fixed on the ground and her mouth is parted in a silent prayer. But the wax dripping from her cold blue lips means it’s already too late to save her…

On her first day back with the Denton PD after a major trauma, Detective Josie Quinn is on the hunt for a missing woman, Krystal Duncan, the mother of one of five children killed in a devastating school bus crash. Hours later, Josie finds Krystal’s body beside her daughter’s grave, her lips sealed together forever with wax.

Forensics match the wax to one of the candles lit in memory of the sweet little souls who died, giving Josie her first lead to a support group made up of the parents who lost children in the crash. Painstakingly dissecting the lives of these grieving couples, it’s clear to Josie that each of them is hiding something about the day of the accident—but whose secret is worth killing for?

The case takes an agonizing turn when the body of another young mother is found near the site of the bus crash. Someone connected to the accident is out for revenge. As the members of the support group are picked off one by one, every second counts for Josie to save the lives of these loving parents who have already suffered the loss of those they treasured most…

An absolutely gripping and totally unputdownable crime thriller from an Amazon, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author. Be warned, this book will keep you up all night! Perfect for fans of Angela Marsons, Robert Dugoni and Rachel Caine.

My Review;

Thanks to the Bookouture and NetGalley, too,
For my copy of this book for which this is my honest review.

This is the twelfth Detective Josie Quinn Book
An amazing read, please take a look.
Following the dramatic end of Hush Little Girl
Poor Josie is grief stricken and in a whirl.

The death of her Gran has left her unsure
But she’s due back on duty tomorrow, can she endure?
However, she’s there when a woman’s body is found
Posed, kneeling by her daughter’s grave, on the ground.

The daughter was killed in a bus crash along with four more
All lived nearby and justice is what their parents are looking for.
The driver is due in court very soon but as Josie finds
The parents all seem to have secrets of different kinds.

When another Mum goes missing, there’s feeling of dread
Especially when she, too, turns up, dead.
Is someone out for revenge of some sort?
Are they pre-empting what may be revealed in court?

This is a grief filled investigation for Josie and everyone
But coping is hard as the feelings aren’t gone.
It is a moving story of loss and trying to cope
When the loss of loved ones can mean losing hope.

This is a moving addition to this series that’s great
Another page turner that means I cannot wait
To read the next story in which I hope to see
Noah and Josie can happier be.
